GibbonsAlfred St HillMajorHe was born November 9, 1858. He was educated privately and at Christ's College, Cambridge, and took a commission as Lieutenant, in the 3rd East Kent Regiment in 1882. he served in the BBP from 1890 to 1893, being present at Rhodes' Drift at the time of the threatened Boer trek into Mashonaland. In 1894 he originated a movement in favour of the preservation of big game, which has since had far-reaching effects in the desired direction. He explored a large district in the Upper Zambesi basin in 1895-96, and from 1898 to 1900 led an important expedition into the interior of Africa in the interests of Imperial advancement and geography. He compiled a map of Barotseland as far as the Congo-Zambesi watershed in the north and the Kwito River in the west. He was the first to navigate the Middle Zambesi from the Kebrabasa Rapids to the Gwaai confluence, in the pioneer steamer Constance. He discovered the source of the Zambesi in 1899, and has followed the whole course of that river. The combined routes of his various expeditions represent a mileage of upwards of 20,000, and included the journey from Cape Town to Cairo, and from the mouth of the Zambesi to Benguela. Major Gibbons commanded a squadron of Younghusband's Horse during Boer War, and he was afterwards (1905) sent to examine the territory offered by the British Govt, in Uganda for the establishment of a Zionist Colony. He is the author of Exploration and Hunting in Central Africa, and has since completed Ajricajrom South to North through Barotseland (1904). He married, in 1898, Constance, daughter of the Reverend Henry Wood.Imperial Yeomanry
